Splicer Bars

Splicer Bars came out in the mid 1980s and were fruit-flavoured and multi-coloured twisted candy bars which were really chewy. The advert featured a policeman and various other people biting into a splicer bar and it turned them all multi-coloured! Ace! They tasted soft but chewy...

    I loved these, must have ate at least 2-3 bars a week. I think I use to eat them one colour at a time and I think you could pull them apart but not sure long time ago.

    Everyone thinks I'm making it up. I remember them in the mid to late 70's. The tv advert was kids in white jump suits on white go carts on white ramps, everything would become multi-coloured leaving rainbows in their tracks.

    At last - other Splicer fans. No-one else I know remembers them which, I guess, explains why they stopped making them.

    I think of them a lot..... Anytime a mention them to anyone no one else remembers them and i was beginning to think they were just a sweet dream.

    yeah i remember the splicer, it was a fruity chew bar, a bit like opal fruits in a bar !!!!

    OMG. They were like Opel Fruits rolled into a sausage shape of the same flavour, then the four sausages were twisted together and ... heh presto ... I give you, the Splicer Bar!!! The jingle went: "Splicer, is nicer it's sweet everytime. Strawberry and Orange, with Lemon and Lime. Bite it, you'll like it And soon you will see. Splicer, is nicer. From Nestle Rowntree." I still remember the jingle! HOW SAD AM I !!! LOL. I thought I was the only person left alive who remembered them! Ha to everyone who thought I was mad!!! Bring back the Splicers!

    Blast from the past!! Yes they were sort of pastel coloured and fruity - not thought about them in 30 yrs!

    I remember them well - but by another name 'striper'. As I remember from the ad they were also at a wedding and they all turned coloured as they bit in the bars. Do you know why they had two names?
